Library Services– Digital Resources & Assistance
Many college courses require independent research and reading outside of the classroom, and college is also a place where students are encouraged to further explore their world and their interests. Library resources provide the materials and opportunities to accomplish these goals and to help students learn and grow within and beyond the classroom. Library services for all students at Northern Pennsylvania Regional College are provided by the Warren Public Library in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Power Library system.
Due to our learning model, students access most library services digitally. These online resources include non-fiction and fiction e-books and research databases covering a variety of general subject matter as well as those focused on specific subjects and disciplines. With an internet connection and a library card (provided by the Student Success Specialist), students can access these digital resources 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The best resource for help with a specific research or reading assignment is always the course instructor. However, NPRC’s library services also include a “Chat with a Librarian” feature through the Warren Public Library website that provides 24/7 assistance to students regarding general library navigation, research questions, or other library-related topics. Librarians are also available to students by phone or in person. Feel free to stop by the library for assistance!
